The announcement and unveiling of the GMC HUMMER EV last year sparked a great deal of curiosity towards how a macho electric truck will be embraced going against the grain of the traditional fuel-burning vehicles. A muscular style revisiting the military-derived aesthetic of the original Hummer models and marketing performance numbers such as 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque seems to have successfully drawn attention to the upcoming vehicle’s capacities. Ahead of the release of GMC HUMMER EV Supertruck with early models arriving in the United States later this year, a companion model with a sport utility body style is announced for early 2023.


Boasting the same athleticism and tough design as the previously-unveiled truck variant, the 2024 GMC HUMMER EV SUV’s inclusion of an enclosed cargo compartment will provide owners access to as much as 81.8 cubic feet of cargo space. Integrated load floor storage and side compartments behind the second row passenger seating allow for organized, secured handling of smaller items.

Compared to the HUMMER EV pickup truck, the SUV version of the upcoming electric vehicle features differing exterior dimensions. At 196.8 inches (4,999.5 millimeters) in total length, the GMC HUMMER EV SUV is 20 inches shorter than the truck. As nimbler version of GMC’s electric platform operating on a 126.7-inch (3,218 millimeter) wheelbase, the SUV actually outperforms the earlier-announced variant in turning radius. When equipped with optional 4 Wheel Steer, the 2024 HUMMER EV SUV can complete a full turning circle in just 10.8 meters. Vehicle width, suspension system, maximum ground clearance and max approach angle remain nearly identical on both body styles of the GMC HUMMER EV SUV.


Standard equipment that will be appearing on the 2024 GMC HUMMER EV SUV lineup includes a tailgate-mounted, full-sized spare tire, Digital Key and a 13.4-inch diagonal infotainment screen that possesses in-depth details relating to energy management as well as battery performance. The HUMMER EV SUV will be available with various trim levels accommodating different equipment and powertrains. With a retail sticker of $88,898 (Canadian price), the HUMMER EV2 SUV has a rated range of 402 kilometers and is propelled through a two-motor setup. The $104,898 GMC HUMMER EV2X SUV maintains the two-motor configuration but contains a larger capacity 20-module Ultima battery pack providing an increased maximum driving range of 482 kilometers. A three-motor setup delivering a maximum output of 830 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque is found on the HUMMER EV3X SUV priced at $119,398. An Edition 1 building from the GMC HUMMER EV3X SUV will be the first version of electric vehicle to release in early 2023 arriving with standard premium 22-inch wheels, floor liners and will be offered with a special Moonshot Green Matte exterior paint option.

Available features on the 2024 GMC HUMMER EV SUV is extensive including the before-mentioned 4 Wheel Steer with CrabWalk and a Power Station generator. An Extreme Off-Road Package adds underbody armour and rock sliders, heavy-duty ball-spline half shafts as well as 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires mounted to 18-inch wheels. Also included in the extensive off-roading package is an UltraVision camera system giving the driver an underbody view over terrain.

 

The first production version of the GMC HUMMER EV Edition 1 pickup truck (VIN 001) recently sold at the Scottsdale Barrett-Jackson car auction for $2,500,000 US with proceeds fully benefiting the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. While the prominence of being the first vehicle of its type and the charity element of the auction listing played a part, the sale fetching an amount more than 22 times higher the electric truck’s $112,595 retail price highlights the level of anticipation for the potentially game-changing product line.

Is More Imagination Needed Towards Indy 500 Pace Car Selection?

Photo Credit: General Motor/Chevrolet This weekend, the Indianapolis 500 will be run for its 100th time. A primary focus around a 500-mile auto race around a historic 2.5-mile race track has resulted in a far amount of traditions. Some of these traditions such as the Fast 9 qualifying shootout and the honorary starter are newer aspects while one of the oldest is the ceremonial pace setter used to lead the field to the green flag. A staple of the Indy 500 since the first race in 1911, the pace car history ranges from a Stoddard-Dayton roadster to a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 used in last year’s event. This year’s Indianapolis 500 will feature an all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS trimmed in a special preview of the 50th Anniversary Package. The beautiful Abalone White sixth generation Camaro convertible features a 455-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8 LT1 engine perfect for maintaining pace lap speed ahead of a 33-car contingent of machines set to run at speed of 230 miles per hour.
